A grave digger at the Vila Formosa cemetery in Sao Paolo said 1,654 people were buried at the site in April, 500 more than March.

Grave digger Adenilson Costa said;

With this opening of malls and stores we get even more worried

We are not in the curve. We are in the peak and people aren’t aware.

This isn’t over. Now is the worrisome moment. And there are still people out.

People say nothing scares gravediggers. COVID does.
